[Encounter Camps]

At Camp Manitoqua, we believe that learning should cause excitement, not yawns. Encounter Camps provide opportunities, on an introductory level, for campers to explore new interests and develop skills in each area. In an environment that welcomes growth and acceptance, campers will uncover God’s story and the possibilities of His creation in their lives and the lives of others. Overnight Encounter Camps also participate in classic camp activities in the evening.
